With the Hohenstaufen imperial palace and the historical old quarter as the backdrop, this Old German Christmas market is a fairytale come true. Amid this twinkling scene, the shops in the little timber-framed houses behind the Christmas market stalls are open for browsing. You can join a tour of discovery around the narrow lanes with nightwatchmen and town guides in historical costume, and there are lots of Christmas concerts and exhibitions to discover too.
